This is the movie about family Saric… A family in which every member at one time or another played basketball; a family which is at first sight dysfunctional and always on the edge of quarrel. However, that is just an illusion. Their form of communication is completely natural for people from Dalmatia as is their temperament and directness. All of them like to say that in their family everything's „always the same“. Life of these people saturates with penury, hard working, pride and popular defiance which is common for people from Dalmatia. They fiercely fought on basketball courts and are the same way on the „life court“. The result is stable financial situation and numerous awards won in sports. However, even though Dario is famous NBA player, him and his family are still the same: humble, persistent, hard working, noisy, happy and modest.
